What affordable entrance mats are for you or your business will depend upon what you want the mats to do for you. We take pride in our knowledge of floor mats and empathize with the various conditions that our customers face. To arrive at which type of floor mats are truthfully the most affordable, we like to ask a series of questions. Armed with this information, we can then recommend several types of walk off mats in a Good-Better-Best Scenario that is based upon the functionality of the matting. It’s essential that you choose entrance mats that are going to best serve your business or industry.

With this information, the end user is then equipped with which types of entry mat will best suit his or her particular requirements. With many options from which to choose, it is common for our entrance mat recommendations to vary in price.

Recessed mats allow for easy transition between mat surface and surround floors

This combination of functionality and variable price points allows the end user to remain in control of just which mats will be the most affordable entry mat for his or her particular situation.

Myth of Buying Mats Direct
One thing that we have noticed is that when people search for products on the web, they often become pre-occupied with trying to “Buy Directly from the Manufacturer”. It is a common misconception that one will get a better price if he can “eliminate the middleman”. With regard to finding the most affordable floor mats on the web, most of the companies offering entrance floor mats online are not manufacturers at all, but rather they are distributors. And if they are manufacturers, they are not manufacturers of all of the types of mats that they offer for sale.

Most manufacturers of entrance mats would rather sell to a distributor who maintains a focus on selling entrance mats. The manufacturer would prefer to offer a discounted price to someone who buys $50,000 worth of entrance mats from them each year than to someone who may buy only a few entry floor mats one time.

As a result, the manufacturers realize that they would be cutting the throats of their customer (the master distributors like The Mad Matter, Inc.) if they were to offer their entrance mats at too discounted of a price. That said, just because you may be buying from the manufacturer of a product, it does not logically follow that you will be getting the best price for entrance mats by buying direct.

Another fact to consider when talking with “manufacturers” is “Would they offer a competitor’s product to you if it was truly one of the best entrance mats for your specific requirements?” Master Distributors like The Mad Matter, Inc. focus on the needs of the end user – not a specific product. We build our business by fitting you with the right entrance mats for the intended application. THE RIGHT ENTRANCE MATS ARE THE MOST AFFORDABLE MATS.

That said, there are also many categories of “Distributors” as well. Some distributors sell a host of products that may also include a line of floor mats. For instance, janitorial suppliers may sell glass cleaner, floor wax, mop buckets and a line of entrance mats from one or two floor matting manufacturers. A janitorial supplier is looking for opportunities to sell you something. He doesn’t care if it might be a toilet bowl brush, floor wax or entry way mats. They are generalists, not specialists.

FACT:  Master Distributors, like The Mad Matter, Inc., sell floor mats. We focus on floor mats, We know about all types of floor mats. Entrance mats are but one category of floor mats.

I pose another question “Who do you think would be most qualified to offer the best selection of affordable entry mats – a janitorial supplier or a Master Distributor of floor matting?” When considering entrance mats for your particular situation, let us walk through an abbreviated process of how to choose affordable mats.  It is imperative to ask a few questions.

  • Are the mats to be used inside or outside?
  • What size would be most appropriate for your mat(s)?
  • How will your mat(s) be maintained?
  • Will your mat(s) be required to fit in a recessed depression, or lay flat on the surface?
  • Should your mat(s) be portable or adhered in place?
  • What are you expectations?  What do you want your mat(s) to accomplish?
  • Are there presently any mat(s) in place?  If so, are they accomplishing your objective?  If not, what are your mat(s) NOT doing that you wish that they would?
  • Do any doors swing out over the area where you will be using the entrance mat(s)?
  • What colors would best augment your entrance’s color scheme and hold up to the traffic?
  • What type of traffic will your mat(s) need to endure?  Foot traffic, wheel chairs, carts, Heavy use, light traffic, etc.
  • Are there any specific issues or concerns that you may have with regard to the use of these mat(s)?
  • What kind of usable lifespan are you expecting to achieve from your mat(s)?

As you can see, choosing affordable entry mats is not as simple as one might think.  If you told us that the mats were to be used outside of an office building where expected traffic were to include wheelchairs, delivery hand-trucks and a high level of pedestrian foot traffic, we would recommend a certain category of floor mats.  If you told us that the entrance was rarely used, and you were only looking to safeguard your property and not to spend an arm and a leg, we would opt for an entirely different category of entry mats. Again, as you can see, what are “affordable floor mats” may well be different with any changes in your expectations.

These are but a few of the considerations that we look at when assisting you to choose the mat(s) that will be best for you. Our people are trained to ask you pertinent questions that will reveal which types of matting will fit your needs best at an affordable price. .
